Death Wobble cant get the track bar or the bushing

Ok I have had a crap load of diesel 4x4's and of course all of them get beat up in the oil field roads. Pot holes 8 hours plus a day. My 09 has about 50k on it got the death wobble on the highway doing about 60. Go to the dealer try to get the bushing, or just the bar and they tell me that they do not have one and cant get either one. I call around and no luck. I called six different dealers trying to get one, from a 05 to a 10 and nobody has one. The internet says they do, when I order it I get a notice its on back order. Now if that part is that rare, do they have a problem with them waring out and cant keep them on the shelf. My dodge it was a once a month thing changing the whole bar out. Its a stupid little bushing I dont see why its something nobody has in stock on a shelf or can get. So if they cant find one in a dew days the truck is getting traded in for a 11. Funny thing is the bar is the same as is the bushing on the 11

Icon vehicle dynamics make one for these trucks, there are 2 choices one with a rubber bushing and one with a ball end, it's adjustable for different height truck not sure if you have any kind of lift, i have one very nice piece of hardware.

We are just coming out with a solid mount ball joint replacement adjustable bar. For any lifts under 4" you will need to do a small amount of grinding to a needless peice under the axle. Nothing else needs modified and the truck could be returned to stock at any time. Full kit will run $550. Should have them available to ship by the end of the week.
